For current Part II students
The deadline for registration to take Part III Physics in the academic year 2014-15 has passed (it was Friday 14th March).
There is no numerical quota for Part III Physics, but final acceptance is subject to obtaining a sufficient class in Part II.
Consideration of special cases
A student who has not met the required standard, or who has not offered the required subjects, as specified above, or who has not complied with the published deadline for receipt of applications, may request consideration as a special case. A request for special consideration should be forwarded by the student's Director of Studies or Tutor to the Secretary of the relevant Faculty Board, at the earliest opportunity and, at the latest, within two weeks of the results being announced. The Director of Studies or Tutor should state the reasons for requesting dispensation, confirm that the College supports the request and is able to support the student, and believes that the student will be capable of undertaking the Part III course successfully. The application must be accompanied by copies of supervision reports, and a detailed breakdown of the student's marks, year by year and subject by subject. The Committee nominated by the Faculty Board to consider special cases is not expected to consider circumstances of a nature on which the Applications Committee would normally make a judgement. Representations regarding progression decisions are allowed for under the review procedure for examinations for undergraduate and certain other qualifications.
